  • est living dinesen feature studio david thulstrup 9 750x540

    Through the lens of some of our favourite designers we’re taking a deep dive into timber flooring for the home.

    Timber has always led the way for durable, natural flooring. As timeless as it is long lasting, timber is favourable for its ability to warm and soften interiors, withstand wear and tear and offer a sustainable flooring solution. Whatever a home’s style or requirements may be there is guaranteed to be timber flooring to tailor; be it herringbone, strip or chevron, engineered or solid timber, or one of many finishes.

    To break down the myriad of choices we’re taking the lead from nine best-in-class projects, that all share a premium choice of timber flooring underfoot.

    Herringbone Timber Flooring

    Upholding the original heritage details of Camilla Freeman-Topper’s 1930s Bellevue Hill home are the Herringbone Boards in Oak Molto Clear from Mafi. The engineered boards are entirely natural and come pre-finished in a brushed textured surface, in an all-natural oil finish. These Herringbone boards are ideal for underfloor heating, bathrooms and highly trafficked areas.

    HeartOak Timber Flooring

    The Artist’s Home by Studio David Thulstrup is dressed in renowned Danish Dinesen HeartOak timber flooring, almost from head-to-toe. Studio David Thulstrup selected the wide plank HeartOak floorboards for their natural beauty, gently processed in a way that preserves the naturally occurring cracks, locked by butterfly joints of oak.

    Oak White Timber Flooring

    Oak White Timber Boards from Admonter provide a consistent warmth throughout the Netherlee House by Carole Whiting Interiors. Used alongside marble for a natural play of textures, the sustainably sourced, wide oak engineered boards can be laid as a floating installation and are perfectly suited to underfloor heating. Naturally oiled, they’re also easy to maintain.

    Otto XI Timber Flooring

    Otto XI Hardwood Flooring by George Fethers & Co. in Grey White Oyster define the refined palette inside the Bayside Home by Adam Kane Architects. The Otto XI boards tie together cool tones, polished plaster walls, Signorino Statuarietto XL Marble and dark timber veneer cabinetry. Performing high on the practicality scale, they’re resistant to spills with a hardwearing water-base matte finish.

    Massivo Oak Timber Flooring

    Taking timber to the dark side is Precision Flooring’s engineered European Massivo oak, finished in Ardesia on the floors of the Hunters Hill House. Designed by Handelsmann and Khaw, the Hunters Hill House emphasises a sophisticated atmosphere of industrial edges, raw materials and a tonal palette that beautifully contrasts deep timber with all-white walls.

    Chevron Timber Flooring

    For an elegant overhaul of a century-old Victorian terrace, Melbourne-based design firm Biasol couldn’t look past engineered chevron parquetry in Penza made from European Oak, available from Tongue and Groove. Offering a wealth of texture and detail, the Chevron flooring is a fitting choice to pay nod to the building’s Victorian heritage.

    White Smoked Oak Timber Flooring

    studiofour laid down White Smoked Oak from Royal Oak Flooring in their Mayfield Residence, to help provide a tangible connection to the building’s landscaped surrounds. Smoking is a natural oxidation of the oak timber, causing it to deepen in colour and have a tonal variation that would otherwise be reached after 20-30 years.

    Douglas Fir Timber Flooring

    In the Remember House, a family home in San Francisco, Edmonds + Lee selected two-inch Douglas Fir flooring by Dinesen; the “very first design choice” in the project. Lighter than its Dinesen counterparts, Douglas Fir has a global reputation for retaining character, offering a white-washed bed for any deserving space.
